We removed the existing deck handrails, piers and steps. And then constructed a new 584 square foot deck extending from the rear of the house to the existing retaining wall.
Approximately 16 new masonry piers were to be installed to support the new deck. The piers on the exposed side of the deck were completed in brick. The new deck was be framed with 2”x8” PT material. The framing material was installed at 12” on center to accommodate the diagonal
decking installation. The new decking material is to be TimberTech composite decking. The TimberTech decking material was also used for the stair treads. The new decking was installed with a hidden fastening system eliminating any face nails. The exposed deck band was covered with a matching TimberTech fascia trim material and the steps risers are covered with the same material as the band. The exposed area under the deck on each side of the steps is enclosed with picture framed PT diamond lattice.
The railing for the steps and deck is an ornamental powder coated aluminum.
The new deck is partially covered by a 24’x18’ roof supported by 6-12”x8’ fiberglass tapered columns. Three 2’x4’ fixed skylights are framed in the roof aligning with the rear door, kitchen sink window and doggie door window. These skylights provide light to the deck area under the
roof as well as light for the kitchen.
The ceiling of the new porch is routered 4’x8’ plywood panels painted sky blue. Four recessed lights and two ceiling fans are installed in the new ceiling. Two exterior outlets will be installed on each side of the porch beam against the house. Riser lights are installed in the new steps
accessing the deck.
